One hour with Jesus

As stated by Pope Benedict XVI in his apostolic exhortation “Sacramentum Caritatis” (The Sacrament of Charity), “Eucharistic adoration is simply the natural consequence of the Eucharistic celebration (mass), which is itself the church’s supreme act of adoration… .’  “The Veil Removed” video is an illustration of this adoration in the coming together of heaven and earth at Mass, as seen by saints and mystics, revealed by scripture and in the catechism of the Catholic Church. Pope Benedict continues, “The act of adoration outside Mass prolongs and intensifies all that takes place during the liturgical celebration itself.”

To grow closer to our Lord, deepen our faith, and strengthen our community, St. Charles Church in Bloomington, Indiana hosts Eucharistic Adoration from 1 pm Sunday until 8 am Saturday, every week.  We are very blessed to have faithful adorers who volunteer their time on a weekly basis to ensure Jesus is never left alone.  The generosity of our volunteers allows others to visit Jesus in their time of need.

Come to me, all of you who are weary and loaded down with the burdens, and I will give you rest. Matt 11:28.

We always welcome new adorers.  To sign up for Adoration, go to Signup Information or contact the Adoration Committee by sending email to or calling 812-269-1998.
